Ansa’s straightforwardness tends to rub people the wrong way but she’s a good ally to have when you’re in a pinch. She’s a crack shot and seems to know a ton of necessary information that no one else does. Despite her strong, sturdy air, she can be as elegant and beautiful as her gold laced bow and quiver.

Ansa is truly the Golden Girl in many different ways. Though she comes off as playful and carefree, she’s pretty no nonsense. She doesn’t like misunderstandings or pointless arguments and isn’t afraid of putting herself in the line of fire if it means solving them. That’s not to say she’s argumentative. Ansa has no problem backing out of a fight if she feels her interjection would be pointless.
Ansa is sturdy and reliable and an excellent shot. She knows a lot about Tuonela and her knowledge proved useful quite often, though no one would really like to admit it. Her straightforward and fearless attitude tends to irritate most people and her strength as a woman tends to intimidate the boys. Not that she’s concerned with any of that. Ansa’s too busy searching for something important, although it’s not entirely clear what that thing is.
Greta finds this curious object in the midst of a bad decision but it may just help her preform one of her most virtuous actions. Magic is easiest when channeled through an instrument, they say. Laced with runes, this pen is designed to turn one object into another.
Hilja is the captain of the she-pirates and a dangerous person to make an enemy out of. She wields an elegant black and gold long sword called The Black Mamba and a separating serpent-like red blade called Crotalus Ruber. (Neither names are mentioned in the book so this is more of a fun fact! :D) Obviously Crotalus Ruber is the one on top and The Black Mamba’s on the bottom. Hilja is a single sword user so she never wields them together. The Black Mamba is for close combat and Crotalus Ruber is for long range.
I’m pretty sure they’re not the swords on her profile only because I designed them after I drew her so pay no mind to that. Another fun fact: The Black Mamba is the name of one of the the most venomous and silent killing snakes in the world while Crotalus Ruber is the name for the red rattlesnake. I chose these names for the colors of the blades, but also the amount of noise and grace they produce in battle.
The process for acquiring this weapon turns out to be longer and more excruciating than Hanno would’ve preferred. It’s a short bow made for speed and hunting that doesn’t require as much strength as others making it excellent for beginners. The thin layer of jewel-like stone that’s encrusted into both bow and quiver is purely ornamental, but something about it’s blue glow feels very magical to Hanno. Perhaps that’s because it reminds him of his sister.
I try desperately to run through the sand
As I hold the water
In the palm of my hand
Cause it’s all that I have
It’s all that I need and
The waves of the water
Mean nothing to me
But I try my best
And all that I can to
Hold tightly onto
What’s left in my hand
But no matter how
How tightly I will strain
The sand will slow me down
And the water will drain

Again I was inspired by my favorite band and drew this in my sketch book on the flight back from Texas. The lady next to me was underlining nearly every sentence in the book she was reading, tapping my lightly and consistently with her elbow at the end of each line. It was annoying but I held my tongue and continued to draw until I was finished and she had the nerve to get me attention with a nudge and tell me it was good. What is wrong with people? Or a better question would be what the hell was she underlining every sentence for?
